first_imgJose Mourinho said he was “not worried” about an injury suffered by Loic Remy during Chelsea’s 6-0 hammering of Maribor in the Champions League.The France striker went off with what looked like a groin problem shortly after scoring the opening goal at Stamford Bridge.He was replaced by Didier Drogba, whose penalty made it 2-0 – his first goal since his return to Chelsea.“We are playing well, are confident, solid and have found a good balance.”Jose Mourinho after Chelsea’s winDrogba has been nursing an ankle problem and the 36-year-old had been deemed fit to play half an hour at most, but Remy’s injury meant he was called upon.And with top scorer Diego Costa struggling with a hamstring injury and Remy expected to miss Sunday’s game against Manchester United, it leaves Mourinho potentially short of attacking options.But the Blues boss said: “Remy’s is a muscular injury, I don’t know the dimensions and I’m not worried.“When a player is injured, play another one – it’s not a problem. I don’t like to speak about injured players.“I was not expecting Didier to play 75 minutes. Yesterday we talked about 30 minutes. Circumstances meant he had to come on and he was comfortable to play 75 minutes.“In the end it was very important for Didier because the best thing for a player to improve his condition is to play.”Chelsea’s resounding victory cemented their position at the top of Group G. They are two points clear of Schalke, who beat Sporting Lisbon.“We won and are top of the group, so we’re happy,” Mourinho added.“We are playing well, are confident, solid and have found a good balance. We now have the players to play the game we were preparing last year and couldn’t manage to do it in a perfect way.“At 3-0 at half-time, on many occasions a team just stops and is happy with the points. But they carried on playing and trying to score.”See also:Drogba scores as Chelsea thrash MariborFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

first_imgKevin DavieYou don’t have to remember too far back, 1989 to be precise, to the day when it was declared game over in the great and often hostile debate between markets and planning. Markets won.They won decisively and handsomely, it being hard after 1989 to find an economy which at least pretended to be modern which did not both espouse and practice capitalism. True, you could find the odd museum piece, such as Cuba, but after the fall of the Berlin Wall, markets ruled.Their supporters always saw markets as things of magnificent beauty, each day invisibly and quietly working their magic as they create, calculate and share value. Markets for some came to equal divinity.But suddenly markets are in big trouble. The crisis is so bad that some banks have already been nationalised. A slew of leading governments are rolling out plans to nationalise their banks, in whole or part in a desperate move to get the world’s financial system working again.Some experts say that should the crisis continue to develop as it has being in recent weeks that all banks will end up nationalised. The United States and several other governments have already signalled that their central banks will make loans directly on a short-term basis to non-financial institutions. Until now only top-rated banks have enjoyed this privilege.The central banks have to make loans to large corporations (and states such as California) because the banks have stopped lending to them. So great has the fear factor become that banks are refusing to lend to other banks less they fail and they do not get their money back.So what appeared until recently to be divine, now looks no more than stupid. How did the all-seeing, all-knowing market come to seize up to the point that nationalisation may be the only way to fix things?The thing about the banking system is that the taxpayer is always by default in the equation. Banks, as is well known, do not keep enough cash on hand to be able to pay everyone out if there was a run on the bank.These days, as this crisis has shown, you will not even need to see queues of people outside the bank to know that it is suffering such a run. All clients do it fire up their computers, bring up their bank’s website and start moving cash as fast as they can with no more effort than clicking their mouse.Now Taxpayer Inc is called to the rescue, in the case of the Royal Bank of Scotland taking control of the bank after its share price had fallen 85% from its peak. The idea is that over time this and other nationalised banks will be sold to private investors.We’ll have to see. Government may in the meantime get to like the income stream from dividends and prefer to retain ownership.Viewed from a long-term perspective the debate over private versus public ownership has not ended, and markets have scored an own goal.In the South African case leading business journalists have been heard to acknowledge that the fact that our market is not so free (exchange controls remain on residents) has acted as handbrake on panic.Tight monetary policy has seen us fare better than most emerging markets which have found themselves in the market maelstrom as has tight regulation of the banking sector – none of the flighty and fancy unregulated derivative stuff, we’re South African.So while banks are being bailed out in many countries, money is being printed by the central banks and deposit guarantees put in place, none of these drastic steps have yet visited our shores.Still, the JSE is down to the 21 000 level from trading at a high of 31 000 as recently as May this year.Put in money terms this is a loss of close to R2-trillion. To contextualise, a Medupi-sized power station costs R80-billion. You can buy 25 of these power stations with R2-trillion.There are few if any obvious winners from the market maelstrom of recent days. One is the Democratic Party’s Barack Obama who has been racing ahead in the polls because he is widely and correctly seen as better able to manage the market crisis. His opponent, John McCain appears to be too set on the business as usual approach of recent years which brought the collapse in the first case.It is the Republican administration which has presided over the slack and lax credit criteria in housing, funnelling loans to people who had no hope of repaying the loans. It was also this administration which encouraged the development of a massive shadow financial system behind the traditional one.The latter is highly and prudently regulated. The former, which includes the complex derivative market with a face value of $62-trillion, is less regulated than the casino industry.This is how it was intended to be. No less than former Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan, a deity himself in these circles, fought off attempts to regulate derivatives on the basis that market players were so sophisticated at managing risk that this was better left to them than fuddy duddy regulators.Backers of no regulation saw this as a way for the United States to retain its pre-eminence in the world’s financial markets.Where voices, notably that of Warren Buffet who described derivatives as weapons of mass financial destruction, were raised, they were ignored.We now have a whole new order where socialism first and now capitalism have seen to fail spectacularly.Barack Obama has put air between himself and John McCain as blame has been levelled at two successive Republican administrations for the economic mess.Obama is now just a few weeks off becoming the next president of the United States. His will be the unenviable task of trying to undo the recent mismanagement and  restore the country’s tattered international reputation.Go to the MediaClub weekly columns home pageAs a journalist Kevin Davie is a Nieman Fellow and editor of numerous South Africa business magazines and newspapers.

first_imgThe Australian Men’s Open team impressed on day one of the 2016 Trans Tasman Series, with a six touchdown win over New Zealand, 13-7. Both teams started strongly, with Scott Buckley and Reihana Soutar-Finch trading touchdowns in the opening exchanges to lock the game up at 1-all early. Rob Nakhla scored soon after for Australia, before Soutar-Finch hit back for his second touchdown of the game.Australia then went to another level, scoring four touchdowns in five minutes, with touchdowns to Buckley, Matt Prowse, Pete Norman and Lachlan Pierce, to take a 6-2 lead New Zealand hit back soon after through Ngarohi Black, and when Soutar-Finch scored his third touchdown of the half the home side were back within two touchdowns. The Australians went to the half-time break with a two touchdown lead, 6-4. Whatever Australian coach Tony Trad said to the team at half-time must have worked, with his side scoring five of the next six touchdowns to stamp their authority on the game. Captain Nick Good scored in the second minute, before Black scored his second of the match in the next set for the Kiwis.  Nakhla had his second not long after, before Daniel Barton, Ben Moylan and Shaun Francis scored to give Australia a handy 11-6 lead. New Zealand’s Connah Pamatatau was next to score, while Jordan Marshall-King replied one minute later to score his first Men’s Open touchdown against New Zealand. Shanan Tomuri put the Kiwis within five touchdowns, before Buckley continued his strong performance, scoring his hat trick with just minutes remaining. Australia proved too strong on day one with a 13-7 win and will be hopeful of a series win tomorrow when they play at 3.30pm (NZST). The victory gave the Australians three wins on day one following the Mixed and Women’s wins earlier in the day.FINAL SCORE: Australia 13 (Buckley 3, Nakhla 2, Prowse, Norman, Pierce, Good, Barton, Moylan, Francis, Marshall-King) defeated New Zealand 7 (Soutar-Finch 3, Black 2, Pamatatau, Tomuri).

first_imgThe 2015 NCAA Tournament Bracket.It was only a matter of time. After Ohio State lost to Arizona Saturday afternoon, there are officially no perfect brackets left in the world. ESPN’s lone user with a perfect bracket after the second round wound up nailing his first 38 games before dropping a contest. He gave an interview with the Worldwide Leader Saturday afternoon, and revealed that he had no rhyme or reason to the picks he made.11.57 million brackets were entered in ESPN’s Tournament Challenge. After Arizona’s win over Ohio State, ZERO perfect brackets remain.— SportsCenter (@SportsCenter) March 21, 2015As we’ve noted before, there is no known person to have ever put together a perfect bracket in March Madness history. The odds, which are something in the neighborhood of 1 in 9 quintillion, suggest that it will never happen in our lifetime either.There’s always next year, right?last_img read more

Logan Stieber took home a national championship title for the second year in a row as the Ohio State wrestling team earned sixth place out of 10 teams at the NCAA Championships over the weekend. The Buckeyes, who tallied 59.5 points, finished behind Penn State (123.5), Oklahoma State (119.5), Minnesota (103), Iowa (73) and Cornell (65). The Nittany Lions’ national title is their third in a row. Redshirt sophomore Stieber, of the 133-pound weight class, was the star of the tournament for OSU. Stieber, the No. 1 seed, capped off a perfect season, 27-0, with his defeat of Iowa redshirt junior and No. 2-seeded Tony Ramos 7-4. In the pair’s last meeting at the Big Ten Championship finals on March 10, Stieber took down Ramos, 3-1, in a sudden victory. But the wins are nothing out of the ordinary: lifetime, Stieber is 5-0 against the Hawkeye. “I was able to get into my offense early and open the match up against Ramos,” Stieber said in a press release. “That was the difference this time.” Stieber’s brother, sophomore Hunter Stieber, finished third in the 141-pound class. In Hunter Stieber’s semifinals match, the No. 1 seed suffered a narrow 7-6 loss to Edinboro’s Mitchell Port before earning consecutive victories over Cornell’s Michael Nevinger (9-0) and the Citadel’s Ugi Khishignyam (12-4). Overall, Hunter Stieber finished his second All-American season with an impressive 36-1 record. Fellow two-time All-American and redshirt junior Nick Heflin finished fifth in the tournament at 174 pounds. After being defeated by Minnesota’s Logan Storley, 3-2, Heflin was sent to the fifth-place bout to face-off with Iowa’s Michael Evans. In their previous matchup on Jan. 4, Evans beat Heflin in a 9-4 sudden victory. However, the story was different this time as Heflin pinned his opponent in 2:10 to earn the win. He concluded his season with a 20-7 record. Senior Nikko Triggas (125 pounds), redshirt senior C.J. Magrum (184), redshirt sophomore Josh Demas (157) and freshman Mark Martin (165) were all eliminated on the second day of the tournament. Redshirt junior Ian Paddock (149) and sophomore Andrew Campolattano (197) were eliminated on the tournament’s first day. The championships were held at Wells Fargo Arena in Des Moines, Iowa. read more
